Description

Unlike the Australian species of blue tongue skink which are arid habitat dwellers, the Indonesian blue tongue is a forest floor dweller. A large, robust lizard which can reach a total length of 45cm the blue tongue is a great generalist when it comes to diet, being happy to consume insects, salad, flowers, snails and a small amount of fruit. Care should be taken that they do not become obese, as they are always on the lookout for their next meal.

Allow a large vivarium, a bright basking spot and a good source of UV, and a blue tongue will be part of the family for many years.
